Young Climbing Festival 2014

A day of fun and games to encourage the young climbers of the future

Ycf 2014

The Climbing Works run an annual celebration of climbing, based around supporting the kids that climb at the wall whether regulars or those just getting into the sport. We were delighted to help support this event and the encouragement that it gives to getting more people passionate about climbing.  

"On Thursday 28th August The Climbing Works was swamped with excited children in bright orange t-shirts ready for another fantastic Young Climbers Festival. The busiest by far, this annual event is the highlight of the year for all young climbers who participate on our holiday and regular clubs or climb with their parents in The Mini Works...

The format each year stays the same with the emphasis on the whole event being about fun and participation. Any prior nerves are hopefully extinguished with some crazy games to get the athletes warmed up and relaxed."

For a run down of the day check out the The Climbing Works report.
